Nine Jefferson County Non-Profits team up for #GivingTuesday

JEFFERSON COUNTY, IL — Nine Jefferson County non-profits are teaming up to spread the word to “Give Local” on Giving Tuesday. Cedarhurst Center for the Arts, Spero Family Services, Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA), Lifeboat Alliance, Jefferson County Historical Society, Jefferson County YMCA, Jefferson County Toys for Kids, One Hope United, and United Way of South Central Illinois are working together to let the community know to donate to local charities to help those in their community.

Hillary Esser is the Director of Development with Cedarhurst. She says they wanted to partner with other local not-for-profits to better get the word out about Giving Tuesday.

Ranee Kujawa is the Development Director with Spero. She says Giving Tuesday actually starts with the beginning of holiday shopping weekend.

Those who are interested in joining the local #GivingTuesday movement can stop by Mt. Vernon Kroger between 10am and 6pm on December 3. Additional information can also be found on the Facebook pages of the nine collaborating non-profits.
